Today, earthquakes are often predicted as is the potential destruction they may cause. During a geology lesson consider taking a day or two to study the science of earthquakes.

2 Introduction • Earthquakes represent the vibration of Earth because of movements on faults. • The focus is the point on the fault surface where motion begins. • The epicenter is the point on Earth's surface directly above the focus.
